HCI Webinar: Carbon Capture, Regenerative Agriculture and Solar Radiation Management - A strategic overview

06. March 2021, online

"Andrew C. Bailey and William F. Tooley explore the challenges and opportunities presented by the climate crisis: strategies for success and the difficulties in getting philanthropists to understand what is needed, in getting governments to act, the obstacles to obtaining research and development funding, and the opportunities that await the educated investor. An overview of the climate restoration field reveals a multi-trillion dollar industry in its infancy. Solar and wind are just the beginning."

Webinar: New methodologies for removal of methane from the atmosphere

10. March 2021, online

"The purpose of this proposal is to design and prove low cost ways of taking methane out of air, in ways that can easily be applied in settings where large amounts of methane are emitted. The aim is not to remove all methane, but to reduce mixing ratios of high-methane air where it is 'habitually' present."

Conference: GHGT-15

15. - 18. March 2021, online

"The GHGT conference series has established itself as the principal international conference on greenhouse gas mitigation technologies especially on CCS (CO2 Capture and Storage). Each conference will be a forum for technical discussions related to the field of greenhouse gas control technology. This field can be defined, broadly, as technologies that allow us to continue using our large fossil energy reserves while reducing their associated greenhouse gas emissions."

Event: The Economist: Climate Risk Summit: North America 2021

15. - 18. March 2021, New York / USA

"Over two days The Economist will ask how governments and industry are responding to the impact of physical and transition risk. How should they model their exposure? How do regulators understand the risks and exercise their authority to strengthen disclosures? The programme will explore federal, state and municipality-level management of climate risks and ask where the unmet needs are greatest."

Webinar: Greenhouse Gas Removal in the Iron and Steel Industry

17. March 2021, online

"Iron and steel slags are a glass/semi-crystalline material rich in silicate and oxide minerals, which dissolve 4-5 orders of magnitude more rapidly compared to their naturally occurring counterparts. These wastes are found as large deposits at current and former steelworks, and represent a considerable environmental liability for producers. By accelerating the weathering of slag, it may be possible to reduce this environmental burden. It also offers a mechanism by which the CO2 intensive steel industry could begin to decarbonise, and ultimately become net negative, if combined with extensive emissions reduction at source."

Webinar: Co-delivery of food and climate regulation by temperate agroforestry (CALIBRE)

07. April 2021, online

"‘Tree technology’ needed for agroforestry is already available to use on a mass scale, unlike other negative emission technologies (NET) that require further research and development. Given the urgent need for NET to be implemented before 2020 to avoid 2oC warming (Rogelij et al. 2013), agroforestry is very well-placed to play an immediate transitionary role in the transformative innovation needed to move towards a low-carbon future with multifunctional land use beyond food production in isolation."

Webinar: GGR Lunchtime Webinar - Assessing the Mitigation Deterrence Effects of GGRs

21. April 2021, online

"Greenhouse gas removal (GGR) technologies have the potential to help counter global warming by lowering the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. They might therefore be needed alongside mitigation technologies (e.g. solar panels) that help reduce emissions of greenhouse gases to the atmosphere in the first place. However, there is reason to think that the two kinds of technologies interact, and that GGRs might delay or deter the use of mitigation technologies in various ways."

"The underlying science needed to make negative emissions technologies globally scalable still requires major scientific breakthroughs. Such breakthroughs in Negative Emissions Science (NES) almost certainly will result from multidisciplinary input, including from chemistry, physics, materials science, biology, engineering, and geophysics. This Scialog will challenge early-career scientists in these and related fields to explore together how to advance fundamental science in the design of novel approaches for rapidly removing and utilizing or sequestering greenhouse gases."
